I'm currently working on reducing it, by building most of the packages 
automatically, it still needs several improvements but, it's getting there.

5.19 is fine, but it's built against qt 5.6 which makes testing it hard (you'll 
need to rebuild all the packages that depend on it and use private qt 
symbols). Also qt 5.6.0 has some regressions that will be fixed in 5.6.1, so qt 
5.6.0 won't be in unstable.

The main issue here is that the current way experimental works allows only one 
experiment at the time.

It's in experimental because it's not an independent upgrade, it affects 
packages from plasma, applications and even some not maintained by the team, 
sadly it's stale because experimental won't allow a sane way to address the 
current issues. The next upload will go to unstable directly and address the 
issues there.
